As COVID-19 continues to spread, measures have been taken across the baseball world to ensure the safety of players and everyone else involved. 

While our Spring Training event in Sanford, Florida was the first domino to fall, several other organization's that directly affect our baseball operations have also taken steps to combat COVID-19.

COVID-19 - We have shut down all Nationals practices and events until the school board decides to re-open. In addition, Baseball Ontario has put out a statement, all recognized teams cannot proceed with practices until word from them. Our facilities in Cambridge, Kitchener and London have also shut down during for this period. 

We are a family here with the Nationals and we all need to support each other.

We have come to make the unfortunate decision to close our doors to the public, effective immediately. The closure will remain in effect until further notice is given. We are not setting a date to return to business as usual since the current situation with COVID-19 is evolving by the day. We will be working in coordination with the guidelines set forth by the WHO and Government of Canada as we navigate these waters. 


We will continue to provide any updates or changes in regards to our baseball operations as they come in.
